I know Halloween isn’t until next month but I felt the need to talk about Vampires. I’m not talking about the broody, sparkly vampires of Twilight, but about those vampires that appear in our lives everyday. Those Energy Vampires show up in our lives not to drain us of our blood but of our energy.
Energy Vampires come in all shapes and sizes, but they have one thing in common. They use their stories to take energy from us. Have you been around someone who has drama in their lives constantly? Even a broken fingernail is a reason to plunge them into negativity. There are also those Energy Vampires who are very passive aggressive. They still have an undercurrent of negativity in their lives. Often for them it is the “poor pitiful me”.
You might ask if they are aware that they are Energy Vampires. I can honestly say from my experience that the majority are unaware. Most people are really unaware of their energy or where it is flowing and what it is doing. I think they just recognize that they feel better after talking or engaging with people. Of course, those who they have engaged with feel drained.
We will always come in contact with Energy Vampires. Although a necklace of garlic might keep people away, a true Energy Vampire will still find a way into your energy. How do you handle an Energy Vampire without seeming uncaring. One thing is please do not feed into the Energy Vampires story. If they say their world is coming to an end then simply reply that you are sorry. Don’t add more fuel to the story by asking them to explain more. Change the subject to something more positive. If they won’t let up then you will want to set a boundary. Let them lovingly know that you want to help them focus more on the positive so that you both feel better. Sometimes they may try to pull you into situations that are not yours to deal with. In that case you may want to tell them that you don’t feel comfortable with that and then change the subject or remove yourself. It can all be done lovingly.
Energy Vampires can literally have you feeling anger, frustration, depression, and even physically drained. And it’s not even your issues! We are all at risk of Energy Vampires and we are at risk of being Energy Vampires ourselves. So let’s check how we are interacting with others. Are we draining the energy of those around us or are we encouraging and inspiring those around us? Please note that it is OK to vent and share your positive and your negative stories with those who love you but be aware of how much energy you give to those stories and try to quickly change your perspective about the story. Don’t continually tell the story and not do anything to try and change it to a more positive tale.
Take care of yourself and take care that you don’t become an Energy Vampire yourself!

Dear Annette Bingham,
I wish to thank you for sharing your Divinely Inspired Vampire Sparkle story. So many people are innocently deceived by the allure of certain Cultural Anomalies such as vampires and do not truly understand the harm that can come to them by allowing themselves to be physically, psychologically, intellectually.emotionally. and Spiritually drained by others that are only seeking to exploit their gifts, talents, and God given energies for their own purposes. I truly agree with you that these low level energies can harm and disable us if we are only sympathetic to their purposes.. People are so innocent in so many ways and TRUST OTHERS and fall prey to these types of Energy Drawing Vampires.
These people never want solutions to their problems, they only want you to listen endlessly, silently and don’t even bother to help them. They truly do not want help, only sympathy and an audience. It is so melodramatic with all of their mystery and intrigue which is only an illusion of their own personal ego struck self deceit.
Energy Vampires will suck up your time, your pure intentions, your helps, your love, your money, your self esteem, your confidence, and worst of all, attack you when you are drained and symbolically leave you beside the road of life for dead, drained, devastated, used, and abused. They have no regard for your feelings. You exist to help, bless, encourage, increase and honor them. They deserve it. Their self-serving, selfish attitude says it all.
They only need an audience to perform. It is often an academy award winning performance of how poor and pitiful their life really is, as they seek even more attention YET DO NOTHING TO CHANGE, HELP OR SOLVE THE SITUATIONS THEY LIVE IN AND EXIST FOR.
Attention Baby, that is all they want. They refuse advice. They only want to talk and exhaust us….Leave them behind. Do yourself a favor and UN-INCLUDE THEM IN YOUR LIFE. They never have a sense of fairness and never will.
Me, Me, and More Me is all they think of.
I want to encourage others to consider it this way: If you have 8 hours to sleep, 8 hours to work and only 8 other hours left to drive to and from work, buy your food and prepare it, run your errands, transport your kids or parents to their responsibilities, bank your money, go to Church, love your family, visit your REAL friends and relatives, shave your legs or face, plan your future, maintain your health, relationships, love life and endless other relationships, exactly how much time to you have to WASTE with these Energy Vampires? Only YOU can decide.
Thank you Annette for cutting to the quick of these Energy Vampires and making it extremely clear and concise for us all to understand how to no longer feel obligated to be used by these lower life forms of Energy Suckers.
Blessing ourselves with the most positive, illuminated Light and Love of God, Jesus the Christ Light, and the precious and Divine Holy Spirit.is the very best thing we can do for our own Personal Holy Spirit and our Future Peace, Healing and Inspiration for our own Futures.
Thank you Annette. Your Divine Inspiration is simply incredible and I so truly enjoy ALL you offer of your Spiritual Wisdom. May God Bless You Always on Your Journey of Healing, Inspiration and the Perfect Peace You Share With Us All.
God Bless You Personally and Professionally, Always, and All You Touch.
